1935 Bentley Sedanca Coupe. The Bentley 3 1/2 Litre was the first new Bentley model following Rolls-Royce's acquisition of the Bentley brand in 1931. Bentley sold only the drivable bare rolling chassis with engine, gearbox and radiator, ready for coachbuilders to construct on it a body to the buyer's requirements. This 1935, 3 1/2 Litre Derby Bentley was originally owned by the Honorable Richard Cravens who was a member of the British Parliament. He ordered it from the coach builder, Park Ward, as a one off Sedanca Coupe for his wife. Bentleys of this era are known as Derby Bentleys because they were built in the Rolls-Royce factory located in Derby, England. The owner bought the car in 1991 as a parts car and restored it to its current condition. The Bentley has been driven it 23,000 miles since restoration. Owner: Noel and Janet Cook.
